MARION COUNTY AS SHE WAS IN 1836
Adapted from the Mt. Echo articles by W. B. Flippin ca 1899
(continued from Volume I Number 4)

        About 1839 or 1840 a large detachment of Indians came through this county, said to be about 3,000 men, women and children, moving west. They were Cherokee and Creek. Many were well dressed and riding good horses; fine looking men, from their appearance they were half breeds, while many were poorly clad. Many of the women had only a blanket wrapped around them while those with babies had them strapped in cloth attached to their backs. It was winter when they came to the White River and ice was frozen over along the banks. They forded the river and made camp shortly. They built big fires which burned all night. The Indian agent had priced them and brought provisions for those lacking.
        That evening a "large fine looking" man came to the Indian camp. He had recently arrived in the country. His name was Micajah Hogan. His older brother Ewing had preceded him by several years, both coming from Kentucky. He was a gambler and he came to gamble with the Indians. They gambled a lot that night and won a considerable amount of money.
       Early the next day the Indians moved on, but two of the braves crossed back over the river. Hogan had returned and "put up" at the house of the ferryman. The braves, Benge, a sub-chief, and Young, a tall good-looking Cherokee, found Hogan and told him they wanted to play a game of cards. Hogan consented and they sat down on a large log and "commenced" playing what is called "seven-up." Hogan kept talking and soon a crowd had gathered to watch. Young hardly ever spoke, but seemed to watch the game closely. Hogan was losing almost every game. They were betting freely, playing out a hand. Hogan came in one of being out, as they called the end of the game. He threw down his cards and cried, "Out!" in a loud tone. "Yea," said the Indian. "Out of Hell and a pity for that." Young got up pretty soon and said, "I am satisfied. I have won back all the money you won from me last night." During the game Benge had spoken to Young in Cherokee. Hogan told him to speak English. Benge, whose eyes blazed fire, drew out a fine silver handled pistol. Hogan told him he had no arms. Benge said, "You shall not have that for an excuse" and pulled out a mate to the pistol and offered it to Hogan. He refused to take the pistol. Instead of Benge shooting Hogan, he let loose with a volley of oaths, cursing Hogan and the white man, saying they had taken their homes and compelled them to go from the land of their fathers to a land they knew nothing of in the far west. Hogan told him he had nothing to do with it. Benge replied, "But your people did and I hate them all alike." Benge was a large square-built man and appeared as vicious as an enraged lion. Benge and Young mounted their horses and rode off.
       Jesse Goodman, as a merchant failed and he, with the rest of the Goodman family, at least 20 of them, grew tired of the once praised country. He, Jesse Goodman, began to sing the praises of Texas. All the others, but myself agreed to leave Arkansas and travel to Texas. They all made ready; my father wished me to go, but I told him to go, but that I had 40 acres of land with 20 acres under cultivation. This was a large amount for the time. Most fields ranged from 5 to 15 acres. I had also built up a fair stand of cattle, horses, and hogs and I had build a fair backwoods house, the only one at that time with a plank floor and a loft in the Flippin Barrens area. Allen Flippin and Tom Rutherford went with the Goodmans. However, my parents did remain. We were the only ones of the original group to stay. We heard that they all settled near Dangerfield, Texas. In less that five years all or most of those men and women had died. Jesse Goodman and wife were buried in the same grave. George Goodman and wife died a short time later. Allen Flippin's wife soon followed. Tom Rutherford died leaving his wife a widow and I have heard that Allen Flippin married her.

FROM THE EDITOR

       Happy New Year! And welcome to the second year of Bramble Bush! Those of us back here where it all began look forward to giving each of you some exciting - and maybe not very well known - Marion County history in 1997.
       The advance sales of the new book Genealogies of Marion County Families 1811-1900 are going great guns. The response is even better than we'd expected. If you haven't ordered your copy, please do so; you surely don't want to be the "only kid on the block" without it. We here at the Society feel this is one of the best genealogical reference books of its kind and by far the most informative when it comes to Marion County. I can't tell you how proud I am to have been a part of putting all the data together.
       Remember, membership dues for the '97 year need to be paid right away. If you haven't sent yours yet, please get them in so you don't miss any of Bramble Bush. Otherwise this will be the last issue you'll receive. Unfortunately, although we regret it, without your dues we aren't able to publish the Bush. We look forward to having you on the membership list for 1997 - and 1998 - and 1999 - ad infinitum.
       The 8th Annual Ancestor Fair at Leslie AR is coming up in June (see Families & Fairs). It's a marvelous place to find - and often to meet - kin from all over the world. If your ancestor-hunting plans in 1997 include visiting the Marion County area, try to match them to this Fair. It's great.

BERRYVILLE IS HOME TO
CHEROKEE HEADQUARTERS
The Baxter Bulletin, 8 November 1996

        BERRYVILLE - The Northern Cherokee Nation has opened a Tribal Enrollment Office and Native American Gift Shop at 310-D S. Main St. in the Gingerbread Shopping Center (on Highway 62). Hours will tentatively be 10 a.m.- 5 p.m. Mondays - Fridays, The office will set special appointment times if these hours aren't convenient; call (501) 423-2880.
        "I will be glad to provide genealogical assistance and other information to anyone interested," said Arkansas Tribal representative Sharron Benda. "All we need from people who think they may have some Cherokee ancestors is for them to fill out an application, do an ancestral chart for us giving us an idea which of your ancestors was Cherokee, and we will do the research for you. The Northern Cherokee have records, publications, maps and progenitor lists among other things to research from. Every so often we request an affidavit from a family elder to help with the proof of your heritage."
        A spokesman said that the tribe's presence in this area predated the "Trail of Tears" era, when related Cherokee tribes from the east coast were forcibly removed to reservations in Oklahoma. Along the way, other Cherokees were ordered to join the exodus, but some chose to remain in this area, escaping and hiding out. These people managed to survive in isolated pockets.
       Over the course of generations, the remaining Cherokees often intermarried with the settlers. There could be as many as 3,000 to 4,000 Cherokee descendants in the northwestern part of Arkansas, and the same amount in southern Missouri.
       Benda states, "It is our job to help seek them out and get them enrolled in the tribe. These people are our long lost relatives, and we need to be joined together once more."
        The Northern Cherokee Chief, Carl Gray Owl Griggs of Clinton MO., compares Cherokee blood to gold, in the sense that a little can be drawn out into a fine thread without losing its essential nature, the spokesman said.
        The headquarters for the Northern Cherokee Nation is in Clifton, Mo., where Chief Gray Owl, his wife, Jean, and many volunteers work daily in the tribal offices and trading post. The tribe's land holdings, gas station, optical shop, food and clothing bank and other endeavors are there also.
       The name of the organization is incorporated under is "The Northern Cherokee Tribe of Indians of Missouri and Arkansas," and "it is the only other name we are affiliated with," the spokesman said. "That is also the name which is recognized by the Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA); the state of Missouri; and Washington DC."
